Uber’s Flying Taxi (Video)

Uber unveiled its flying taxi prototype, which looks like a giant drone from CNBC.

So they came up with a concept for a four-passenger taxi that flies? Now THAT’S how you earn the name Uber for real! This is uberAIR.

The reality of urban air transportation is closer than you think. In fact, Uber Elevate has already started exploring the barriers we’ll need to overcome to make vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) a reality and bringing uberAIR to Dallas and Los Angeles by 2020. Watch this video to see what an end-to-end flight in an uberAIR VTOL will look like. We’re excited to partner with some of the world’s top manufacturers, real estate developers, agencies, and cities to make this vision a reality.

With VTOL aircrafts, passengers can enjoy quicker daily commutes, while our cities experience less traffic congestion and cleaner air.

Look, Up In The Sky… It’s The Kitty Hawk Flyer!

Maaaan what is it with all these flying car joints as of late?

The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes.

Technology: All-Electric Flying Car (Video)

Yes. We have posted on flying car tech, but this car right here ninja… this looks straight outta Star Wars… Trek… GI Joe! True vertical take-off and landing in a sleek design. Usually, we’d expect this to be a military thing for some time before it becomes a civilian product for consumption. But naaaaah son. LOOK at WHERE they are demoing this; right on the roadway!

Flying cars, that perennial dream for futurists that always seem to be at least five years away, may be a little closer to reality than we realize. A lot of prototypes have been showcased recently, and a lot of money is being tossed around. More people than ever seem to buy into the crazy notion that in the near future we’ll be buzzing between rooftops in private, autonomous drones. Today, Munich-based Lilium Aviation announced an important milestone: the first test flight of its all-electric, two-seater, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) prototype.

Park And Fly: AeroMobil 3.0 Is A Real Flying Car For Real People (Video)

Keep on thinking they only have flying cars in cartoons and movies… until one flies overhead. Probably inspired by sci-fi, the AeroMobil 3.0 (made in Slovakia) is an idea that has been in development since 1989. With a max airspeed of 124 mph and max range of 430 miles (on a full tank), this flying car could make short work of daily commutes or make short vacation getaways very workable. AeroMobil’s ultimate flying machine is most ‘unreal’ in the way it is made for real people; uses regular fuel from gas stations and can be parked in regular spaces.

For real. Take a look.

Technology: You Can Have A Flying Car In Your Garage In 2015 (Video)

Might as well face it… the future of private transportation WILL include aircraft! We already posted on the James Bond-esque seaplane coming out.

You could fly out of traffic jams. Terrafugia is already testing a flying car for pilots. This is happening people.
